About Me

hero

Let Me Introduce Myself

I'm currently a Ph.D. student in the doctoral program of the "International Max Planck Research School on Adapting Behavior in a Fundamentally Uncertain World" at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena (Germany), and I plan to submit my thesis December 2018.

During my 3.5 years as a Ph.D. student in economics I conducted a research stay at YALE University hosted by Jason Dana (September - December 2017). I was also invited to present at several international workshops and conferences (Decision-Making for Others Conference 2018, Economic Science Association 2018, European Economic Association 2017; Jahrestagung des Vereins für Socialpolitik 2017, 2nd Coller Conference) during my Ph.D..

"I think the biggest skill I acquired in my Ph.D. was learning to work amid uncertainty – diving into a new territory and figuring it out as I went along."
